Mercy

from Magnet School by BOY FRIENDS

/

lyrics

in plaintive sighs you sang to me
your shape and your dimensions
you left yourself printed in air
as clear as a reflection
you walk between two walls made of
slowly unfreezing water
you stood atop my molten feet
and sang away the hours

show me the mountain to which i’ll retreat
i beseech you, have mercy on me

i have a sense you’re not the rule
nor simply the exception
i’ll never fall asleep again
but under your direction
your eyes are like fermented peach
their gentle apprehension
quiet as ripples on a lake
i’ll trust in your intentions

you don’t understand, it isn’t up to me
you have deprived me of any agency
show me the mountain to which i’ll retreat
i beseech you, have mercy on me
